This might be the 'Holy Grail' of 1995 shows...
..and yes, I understand exactly what that means: best show of their worst year.
But the recording is a great soundboard, and even at this late stage a Hornsby cameo had them all upping their game.
I'm enjoying the hell out of it, especially the second half.

the end is near
the Dead forgetting words are flubbing licks is all part of the appeal, they are not perfect, but when they are on...they are ON.
these shows were not on by any means.
this is when is really became aware of how bad Jerry was. every show from here on out for me was hard to listen to or watch.
i remember during Scarlet/Fire, i thought , "he has no idea what song he is playing or the words".
he had a monitor right in front of him with the lyrics.
not as bad as the Highgate fuck up but close

Quality is very good
This sounds good as for the sound on quality only. I am not going to knock them for always trying to give us there best. Yes this is not the Jerry I so loved for all the years that I followed everywhere. So before anyone gets the chance to rag on the way things were in the later years I thought I would throw in my 2 cents worth.
The set list is intriguing to me... Imagine if this were the set list of maybe a show from 1981 we would be praising a show like this if it were the case.....
My point is some will come here and tell us it was the best show they saw others will come here and Kill it because Jerry doesn't have the same sound we came to love. My point is to each there own. I give this 3 stars because it is from last year of bands existence and is intriguing in itself. Just not my cup of tea but I did listen to it all the way threw. 4 stars on sound 3 stars for joy it gave me this morning. Hopefully some of you love this show because you were there like many of us on tour in 80's.
